Andrew Cotton is put in the frame for Heather's murder
When hapless Heather Trott is murdered next month, the first person the police look at is her fiancé, Andrew Cotton (Ricky Grover) who’s already shown he has a tendency towards violence…
And of course, there have been hints that he’s done something terrible in the past, but we don’t as yet know what that is.
But the real murderer is Ben Mitchell (Joshua Pascoe) and his dad Phil (Steve McFadden) will help his son to cover up the evidence that he killed Heather in a fit of rage.
A show insider told the Daily Star, “Heather’s murder is the next really big storyline coming up – and it’s going to be huge.
“Everyone was desperate to keep the fact that it’s Ben who kills her under wraps because it’s all pointing towards Andrew…
“He’s been getting more controlling and possessive over the last few weeks and has a bad temper.
“So even though it’s Ben who kills her, the police and everyone else on Albert Square believe it was Andrew. It’s a terrible crime that sends shockwaves through the Square.”
The cast are believed to be filming Heather’s funeral scenes this week, while Cheryl Fergison, who of course plays Heather, filmed her last scenes nearly a month ago.
